The Uglies (series)

AuthorScott Westerfield

Genre: YA (Science fiction)

In a Snapshot: In this futuristic fiction, adolescents are surgically altered to fit a beautiful mold. With the goal of eliminating hate, jealousy, and prejudice–this societal compliance instead eliminates differences, creativity, and potential.

Why I picked it up and why I couldn’t put it down: It was a book many of my students were reading. Especially powerful is the message of true beauty. 

Who will like this? A must for girls growing up bombarded with unrealistic media persuasion on what being female is or should be...

A Favorite Quote:

Nature, at least, didn’t need an operation to be beautiful. It just was.

Guest Book Reviewer: Gina Jones, Middle School Teacher
